Pelosi reads riot act to Ocasio-Cortez’s progressive squad: ‘Do not tweet’ about fellow Democrats

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.), an ally of Ocasio-Cortez, trashed moderate Dems last week as the “Child Abuse Caucus” after they effectively forced passage of a $4.6 billion border spending bill that left out oversight and improved standards for children in detention centers.

Pelosi warned idealistic young lawmakers that the work of Congress involves constant compromise.

…Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), said Pelosi should not try to silence progressives, according to sources.

Huh. Wasn’t Pelosi’s point something along the lines of the squad shouldn’t be trying to silence and undercut other voices in the Democratic Party?

Ironic.
